Coloured Raine Call the Shots Highlighter and Blush Duo Review & Swatches

Call the Shots

Coloured Raine Call the Shots Highlighter and Blush Duo is a new, limited edition duo that features a muted copper highlighter paired with a richer coral-red blush. Both shades had good pigmentation and sat well on my skin, while the textures were creamier but a bit thicker/denser, which made them a bit harder to pick up with some brushes.

Call the Shots (Highlighter)

Call the Shots (Highlighter) is a light-medium copper with moderate, warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish with peach-to-pink shifting micro-sparkle. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer with a moderately dense, slightly cream-like consistency. I preferred using a more rounded, denser brush to pick up product, which helped grab product more readily and distributed it more evenly onto my skin. It didn’t play well with more feathery or tapered highlighting brushes due to it being a little stiffer/firmer in the pan. The powder blended out nicely and seemed to “melt” a bit after a few minutes of wear. It lasted well for eight and a half hours on me before I noticed any fading.

Call the Shots (Blush)

Call the Shots (Blush) is a rich, coral-red with warm undertones and a fine, golden sheen. It had a denser, creamier consistency that took a heavier hand/denser brush to pick up evenly, though it was incredibly pigmented where a little went a very, very long way. It looked a bit pinker when applied and blended out and had a soft glow to its finish without appearing noticeably shimmery. The color blended out without too much effort, but between the denser consistency and actual pigmentation, it can be hard to correct once over-applied. It stayed on well for nine hours on me before fading visibly.
